As teams take stock of the last 12 months of remote collaboration, research shows that task and work coordination has been for the most part solved efficiently, but social connection, support and belonging have largely decreased. What can you do to improve team engagement, motivation and wellbeing during the next few months and in a future of hybrid work?
Join us for a practical discussion which we’ll be holding alongside Monica Hernanz, leadership team coach and Chair of the Human Capital Forum at the Spanish Chamber. Monica will cover the following topics:
- A psychological explanation of what is happening to teams.
- Ways to increase engagement during team workload coordination.
- How to increase social connection and a sense of belonging.
- Rituals to build collective resilience.
After the discussion, you will have the opportunity to share your ideas and ask any questions that you might have to Monica.
Date: Wednesday 12th May, 11:00-12:00 BST / 12:00 – 13:00 CEST
